Pop a Top

A while ago, I bought some vintage soda bottle caps on ebay to use on some hairbows for my girls. My family and friends then started giving me all kinds of bottle caps and I now have a shoe box full! So, I took this old lamp and lamp shade

and made this bottle cap lamp shade.

I started by drilling 4 holes in each bottle cap. I tore apart the old lampshade and then started to string bottle caps on the lampshade wires from top to bottom first and then went through the side holes of the caps. I painted the basket black and filled it with some vintage spools and now it looks lovely in my sewing cave!
